Boredom, murder, dress-up, dress-down, the underworld and the inner world. Angry lost resigned women navigate you through a hormonal roller coaster with this collection of documents of events and emotions. This is a biography of the shadowlands of the female psyche, with no cause or apology. Curated from the Film-Makers’ Cooperative collection by Jasmine Hirst and Katherine Bauer.

I met and filmed Aileen Wuornos on death row in Florida in 1997. We had been corresponding for 5 years when Aileen asked me to film her talking about the truth of her life and crimes as part of her preparation to die. I have
been trying to finish this feature length documentary since then. But can’t. There is something wrong with me. Instead I make two minute trailers about other films I’d like to make. This is a trailer of trailers.

Still Life With Woman and Four Objects by Lynne Sachs

A film portrait that falls somewhere between a painting and a prose poem, a look at a woman’s daily routines and thoughts via an exploration of her as a “character”. By interweaving threads of history and fiction, the film is also a tribute to a real woman. – Emma Goldman, 1986

i hate you by Michelle Handelman
Riffing off of Nauman’s early performance tapes, Handelman chants this negative affirmation into a song of personal endearment. Simultaneously self- reflexive, self-conscious, meditative and pathetically funny.
